to vote no. thank you. >> supervisor farrell: thank you. next speaker please. >> thank you, guys, for taking the opportunity. >> you said pay respect to everybody who's talking mr. farrell would you pay attention to what people are saying instead of caring on a conversation. >> sir, follow the order. thank you. >> thanks for having this opportunity to get everyone's voices and opinions out. i think this is the best opportunity to get the chance to do that. those who were not notified, i just want to explain on behalf of the restaurant and the manager of woodhouse as well and i support this. and i understand that there is a sentiment of protection that some residents in the neighborhood are pushing. and i understand that's the case. but i don't feel there's a threat. the restaurant is always very sensitive to neighbors, the families, to every element that's positive, i think even san francisco has in itself, build a nice community, where you know each other's names and i think that element will help revitalize the location that can use some revitalization. the building is not bein
it in a recreational area is absurd. it's absurd. so thank you. >> supervisor farrell: thank you. next speaker please. >> hi. my name is megan harris and i am a homeowner in the marina and a mother of 3 1/2 year twins that use the green quite a bit and we love it. we are out there quite a bit playing soccer, the views are amazing. this just seems off brand for san francisco as far as i'm concerned because a commercial restaurant -- we have so many designated commercial streets. we've got forti'(ëo mason, chest street, fillmore street, fisherman's wharf. why do we need to put a commercial restaurant there. why not a yoga student, something that will benefit the community, a bike shop, something that people can use, a soccer club. i feel like a commercial restaurant is great for tourists, but i don't necessarily think it's a great thing for the community. yeah, i think of it as more of an eyesore. you look at the bridge, you look at angel island, marina headlands and now look at a sign that says fish market? which i'm sure is a great fish restaurant, the employees are wonderful, they looked nice and i
